. >> the likely short-list to succeed secretary of state hillary clinton is already politically charged. susan rice--the us ambassador to the united nations--is thought to be a leading contender. but some republicans have been highly critical of rice following the attack on the us consulate in libya. >> when they go after the un ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. >> senator mccain. thank you very much, mr. secretary. >> senator john mccain jokingly gave the cabinet post nod to democrat john kerry, the senate foreign relations committee chairman. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and would be easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> kerry is also listed as a potential defense secretary to replace leon panetta. it's a list that includes michele flournoy, who held what's considered the number three job at the pentagon. senior democrats say deputy defense secretary ashton carter is on the list, and former nebraska senator chuck hagel--- a republican-- could represent a reach across the aisle. >> we're in a much str
of the things we heard from secretary clinton this week was her defensive viewing of ambassador susan rice who continues to come under fire from some republicans for comments she made on the attack in the u.s. consulate in benghazi. take a listen. >> susan rice has done a great job as our u.n. ambassador. she has been a stalwart colleague in a lot of the tough decisions that we've had to make. and certainly with respect to defending our national interests and national security at the united nations. >> so clinton is also going to testify on benghazi next week. what are the politics of all of this for secretary clinton? and are there risks for her here? >> i don't think there are necessarily risks for her here as long as she stays out of the whole fray of susan rice and congressional republicans. there's an awful lot going on on that score, but i tnk hillary clinton may be able to keep herself above all that. by the way, we keep expecting the white house for this rice situation to be resolved. we fully expect president clinton to make -- excuse me, president obama to make his announcement about
economy in the new -- committee. would president make a mistake to nominate susan rice as secretary of state? >> i do think that embassador rice is viewed as a political operative and i don't think he's going to nominate her. as i have said, i'll give any nominee a fair hearing and i will in this case. but i think the president realizes on both sides of the aisle there are a lot of concerns there's a fact these a political operative and not viewed as a principal. >> let me just quickly -- you don't think she would pass the senate? >> well, i don't know what will happen. obviously there are many people like me that always give nominees a fair hearing. i don't think she's going to be nominated for a lot of reasons. >> senator schumer? >> yeah, the solution here, a lot of republicans don't want to vote for susan rice if she's nominated by the president. they shouldn't filibuster. they don't have to vote but don't require 60 votes. that's traditionally what is done with presidential cabinet nominees when a president is elected or regleeked we have to leave it there. senator schumer and
